Have you ever coughed so bad that your arms hurt?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (19588points) 1 week ago

I have been doing that for two days. Feels like an inflated blood pressure cuff on each arm.

What should I do?

Time to see a medical person.

@Tropical_Willie Just got off the phone with a nurse. She wants me to self isolate for 10 days. Might be Covid. All appointments rescheduled for after 26th or in person with masks. Nurse said that I don’t need to see a dr.

Just want to wish everyone well and that I love Fluther and everyone on it.

I hope you are vaccinated.
I have a friend who coughed so hard (from pneumonia) she broke her ribs.
Feel better soon!

@filmfann Yes. I am double vaccinated. Plus flu shot. All my shots are up to date.

@filmfann I was going to say that, too! I know a short heavy girl broke at least one. Yikes be careful @RedDeerGuy.

I hope you feel better soon big guy.

I’ve coughed so hard and frequently that I’ve thrown out my back. So, yeah.

Hugs and love. Have you taken any over the counter cough medicine? If not, ask the nurse if you should and what kind.

@chyna Nurse wants me to drink warm water, and isolate for 10 days until November 26. I can’t go to the pharmacy due to isolation requirement.

That’s a bummer. I hope you are able to get food delivered. Where do you think you caught the virus?

@flutherother I don’t know. I’m not certain that I have Covid. I have a rotisserie chicken and $78 worth of groceries on the way. Just need to self isolate till November 26th.
